    The new Office 2016 is here

    WPS doesn't seem to be compatible wiht Windows. That being said, I'm barely using office at all so I'm planning on letting my 365 subscription expire and use LibreOffice.

    Move from Windows 8 to 8.1 NOW!!!

    That just raises more questions. Why are you using the Server version if you claimed to have upgrade keys for 8? They're not the same OS. What are the changes in Server R2 that you do not like? Why not just use a launcher replacement to make it work the way you like? You already have...

    Move from Windows 8 to 8.1 NOW!!!

    Well that's an odd perspective. I'd understand Windows 7 but not Windows 8.0. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but you seem to take on a rather significant amount of work and risk just to avoid adapting to some minor changes. How the hell did you switch to Windows 8 in the first place?

    Do you use a Local account or Microsoft account?

    I'm just wondering what everyone's take is on the whole thing. For me, I find having everything linked to my Microsoft account to be kind of useful.

    Move from Windows 8 to 8.1 NOW!!!

    I've had problems with Windows 8.1 refusing to install. I don't remember how I fix it. I think I have to manually install a couple updates and reset Windows Update.

    Cannot connect to mobile Hotspot, wifi options limited

    Doesn't work. Not even a full reboot helps sometimes. My computer just refuses to see my phone anymore.

    Cannot connect to mobile Hotspot, wifi options limited

    Honestly this has bee annoying me for a very long time. I have unreliable home internet but with Windows 8 connecting to my phone is always a chore. 1. there is no option to refresh wifi networks. I'm sure it does this automatically, but there really needs to be a way to do this manually. I'm...

    Trigger a batch script when power cable is disconnected?

    Long story short, my Asus has a bug where if I unplug it when the screen is closed the touchscreen's driver is disabled. requiring me to manually reenable it. Everything that you would logically think would stop this bug does not work, not even explicitly telling Windows to not disable USB...

    Solved Application locks up when attempting to open/save files?

    It seems that it was because my computer installed some updates and needed to reboot as it has gone away it seems.

    Solved Application locks up when attempting to open/save files?

    This is getting a bit annoying now, I thought it was my hard drive and so I upgraded to a Hybrid, but it seems to be coming back now. Whenever I'm using a program such as Firefox or Movie Maker, when I click browse (and launch the File Explorer API) the application locks up for a few moments...

    Samsung Series 7 Ultra ISSUES!

    Long term you may or may not have difficulty finding drivers for Windows 7. Many laptops that came with Windows 8 do not provide Windows 7 compatible drivers. Windows 10, on the other hand, should be more familiar. maybe, When you tried to install Ubuntu, how did you add the Linux bootloader? I...

    Solved W8.1 won't boot even after restoring registry

    Just to clarify, were you using the application Simple System Tweaker before this happened or did you start using it afterwards to help resolve the problem?

    Is Windows 8 + Wiimote the perfect HTPC setup?

    Hi I never did build the HTPC. After two years how does this setup work for everyone?

    Which Windows tablet do you own?

    I have to say I really like the hybrid solution like my Asus Transformer Flip, but in the future I'd move to a Yoga or another 13" tablet as 15.6" is a bit on the big side (especially when only 1366x768 pixels). I do like gaming on this thing's 840m though.

    what happens to the Win 7 license after I upgrade to Win 8

    My understanding is that the OEM license is valid only when running directly on the hardware it is registered to, and VirtualBox doesn't count because the license has no way of telling what the hardware it is running on. There wouldn't be any way of making it work, short of having the license...

    Set power button to "Ask me what to do"?

    Just to clarify: I do NOT want to DISABLE the power button, just ask me to confirm first. To me it was obvious what my intent was so I ommited that information in the original post, sorry.

    Set power button to "Ask me what to do"?

    My Laptop's power button is in a pretty inconvenient location (a corner next to the volume buttons) and once in a while I accidently push it when repositioning my laptop or trying to adjust the volume. Is it possible to bring back the old dialogue box that was in Windows XP that popped up when...

    Just a reminder to once in a while check for new drivers

    When FINALLY getting Windows 10 to work in a dual-boot system, I discovered that the updated driver for my trackpad contains Remote Link Support, which allows me to control my laptop using my phone! Bluetooth won't connect to my Blackberry in 10, but after updating the touchpad driver in 8.1...
